We are getting married October 1, 2011 and going on our real honeymoon March 2012…we are popping down to vegas for a few days right after the wedding though, but on a tight budget.

Yes my FH and I are…well its not a year more like 6-7 months. We are waiting for 2 reasons: 1: we dont have the money right now and 2: work schedules, FH just got Management position at his job and has to put in so many hours before he can have vacation time!

I dont see anything wrong with waiting….most people I know postpone honeymoons!

It is what you and your FH want and are comfortable with!

We are going on a honeymoon after the wedding but we could only take five days so we are just doing a short trip to San Diego. We plan to go on a big Europe trip before we start TTC.

@blg529: That’s our plan too.  We’re taking a short honeymoon the week after our wedding and then we want to save up to go to either Greece or France. I want to go on at least one REALLY big trip before having kids and enjoy our time as newlyweds to the max.

We did and we didn’t do a huge trip, just a week down on the AL beach.

that’s what we’re doing…. couldn’t really justify spending that kind of money when we didn’t have it, and we refuse to go into debt for a vacation.  we really want to go on a big trip, and it seemed silly to spend money on a minimoon, when we could use that towards our big vacation next year.  so don’t worry, you’re totally not alone!  and we are really happy to have something to look forward to next year… it’s like we’re extending the celebration!!

We are going to go on a mini-moon right after our wedding (not far, and just 4-5 nights,) and then we will most likely go on a fancy trip sometime a year or so later. (think: tropical!)

We are getting married in July but will probably wait until the winter to go on our honeymoon to Hawaii.  It will be a good escape from the cold Michigan winter.

We are.  Our wedding is October 15 but we aren’t going to honeymoon until May 2012.  I am in grad school and have comprehensive exams in January so going over Christmas break was out of the question.  So we are just going to wait until after I graduate.  I guess it will be like a double vacation celebration ha ha!

Fiance and I are…we want to go on a cruise for our anniversary – we’re moving cross country 4 days after the wedding, so no time to honeymoon before the move. I think we’re going to spend a few days exploring the area before he starts his job.

Since we were planning on waiting for our honeymoon, we left for NYC for 2 days after our wedding.  We ended up taking our hm about 6 months later to Cancun.  It was so great!  I had all of my thank you notes done and had my name changed done.  We told the hotel that we were on our honeymoon and they decorated our room.

Like you, I had to save my vacation for last minute prep for my wedding.  Then wait til the end of the year to have my vacation re-acclumlate.

Oh, we went down to CA for New years, so I considered that another mini-moon.
